‘The Mandalorian: The Gunslinger’ SPOILER Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

We’re now halfway through season one of the first live-action Star Wars show and with that in mind, The Mandalorian decided to give us a little pitstop to take a trip down memory lane, of sorts.

‘Mr. Robot’ is Ending and We Will Miss it – ScreenHub Entertainment

I always had a blast telling my fellow movie and TV junkies that I watch Mr. Robot. Surprisingly, nobody really knows that show, even considering its great cast (yes, I mean Rami Malek) and cultural vibe. Before the fourth season aired, the marketing campaigns around this series were pretty minimal and it was still at a time when Rami Malek was pretty much an unknown. … Continue reading ‘Mr. Robot’ is Ending and We Will Miss it – ScreenHub Entertainment

Featured Artist of the Month December: JWMCasavant – ScreenHub Entertainment

JWMCasavant describes himself as “specialising in inky blackness”. This is certainly an apt description, both because his chosen medium leans heavily toward black and white sketches and… Continue reading Featured Artist of the Month December: JWMCasavant – ScreenHub Entertainment

‘Knives Out’ Spoiler-Free Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

I don’t imagine it’s been an easy two years for Rian Johnson. After landing the dream job of directing a Star Wars feature film, he was torn apart by that fanbase for his efforts. But Johnson didn’t let that get to him and began working on a new film. That film is, of course, the whodunit film Knives Out. So, how does the movie fare … Continue reading ‘Knives Out’ Spoiler-Free Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

‘The Mandalorian: The Sanctuary’ SPOILER Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

Remember how I mentioned the end of the last episode felt like the end of a clear and defined arc, akin to what we’d see in The Clone Wars? My assessment on that turned out to be correct as the narrative, setting and plot all shifted during the events of Sanctuary. Did it move the plot forward a lot? Not terribly so, as this episode … Continue reading ‘The Mandalorian: The Sanctuary’ SPOILER Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

‘The Irishman’ Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

It’s finally here. After years of delays, Martin Scorsese has finally released The Irishman. The film, based on the book I Heard You Paint Houses, has been in some sort of development since 2004 and has had a slow and rocky crawl to the finish line. But cinephiles were over the moon excited, waiting for the union of some of the best actors of all … Continue reading ‘The Irishman’ Review – ScreenHub Entertainment

The Sad Clown: How ‘Joker’ Empathizes With Poverty – ScreenHub Entertainment

If art reflects the time in which it’s made, then Joker may be one of the most timely films made in recent years. In an era of cynicism and hopelessness, Joker taps into deep-rooted anger that’s rapidly spreading all over the world as inequality and global upheaval seems to only be getting worse. The early 70s were a similar time, with America still entrenched in … Continue reading The Sad Clown: How ‘Joker’ Empathizes With Poverty – ScreenHub Entertainment

'The Mandalorian' Chapter 3: The Sin Review [SPOILERS] – ScreenHub Entertainment

It’s easy to see why Deborah Chow, the director of Chapter 3: The Child, was granted the entire Kenobi series after watching this episode of The Mandalorian. This is easily the best episode of the show thus far, one that is action-packed raises the stakes and pulls the veil back ever so slightly on the Mandalorian himself and his people’s culture. The episode opens in … Continue reading 'The Mandalorian' Chapter 3: The Sin Review [SPOILERS] – ScreenHub Entertainment

How ‘The Lighthouse’ Torments Its Audience – ScreenHub Entertainment

From the opening shot, The Lighthouse is an exercise in psychological torment. This is hardly a detriment to the film. It’s an unpleasant experience, but this is by design. In a superb example of both filmmaking and storytelling, Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson’s new film employs numerous tricks of the trade to torture its audience as much as possible, thereby creating a constant feeling of … Continue reading How ‘The Lighthouse’ Torments Its Audience – ScreenHub Entertainment
